NI Linux Real-Time - User Interface


Recommended Posts


I am currently working on a project that is deployed on cRIO 9030 with NI Linux RT. My host user interface however does not look like the one deployed on the embedded one. Can you please share with me your experience on which fonts and sizes should I use to make it look as neat as possible ?  Maybe there exists a way to install additional fonts to the RT ?

For the moment I have just found this topic on NI community site : https://decibel.ni.com/content/groups/ni-linux-real-time?view=discussions#/?filter=answered&page=2

however it wasn't very helpful for me.

I would like to underline that I am a new member in our society, so if I break any of your rules or commons please feel free to point it out ;)

Hi @Muzz, and welcome! :)

This page talks about the issue of font difference, and gives you a visual comparison: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/92A4978076B4969586257D27004C3529

I have made one embedded UI which is meant to used on both the cRIO and a PC. I simply made sure that the fonts fit on the cRIO's UI. This ensures that they will fit on the PC's UI too, because the PC produces smaller fonts.
